Of Staying At Home: Family Friction

Wednesday 15 April 2020: Todays marks the end of 1 week since I came back home after my quarantine in a separate apartment. Living in a familiar, comfortable, spacious area definitely has its perks - I get to move about freely and have ample space to exercise, I have a comfy bed to curl up…

Wednesday 08 April 2020: It's the first official day of being back in the comfort of my own home, after such a good first sleep in my own bed. The best thing is that I don't have classes today, so there's less rigidity in my schedule, more freedom for me to settle in and do…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 14)

Tuesday 07 April 2020: It's the last official day of our 2 week stay home notice! We initially thought that this meant we could only step out of the flat at the stroke of midnight, but recently there's been a change of regulations - this means that at 12 NOON ... we are FREE!!! This…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Days 12 and 13)

Sunday 05 April 2020: Yet another productive day today! Finally finished the second of my assignment - a reflective piece that explores the determinants of food choice. Really enjoying this particular module, but as always, learning and actually writing essays are 2 very different things. Had writer's block for this essay one too many times,…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Days 10 and 11)

Decided to combine days 10 and 11 together because I was too caught up with eating on day 10 and hence did not manage to squeeze in time to write an update ooopsie! Here I am now, the night of day 11, trying real hard to recall what I did yesterday... Friday 03 April 2020…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 9)

6:57AM Once again the body clock strikes again. I'm really amazed at how accurate this is, I mean it's such a weird timing to wake up to pee? Managed to fall into a light sleep after the trip to the bathroom though. 8:00AM Properly woke up this time round, and I'm feeling so much better…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 8)

6:57AM This is the third time I've woken up at this timing because of my bladder's urge to relieve itself. I guess internal circadian rhythms are really a thing - I don't even have to set an alarm in the mornings anymore, my body just wakes up automatically and heads for the toilet first thing…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 7)

Tuesday 31 March 2020: It's the halfway mark of our stay home notice! Time is passing slowly yet quickly at the same time - can't believe it's been a week since I came back to Singapore. I'm slowly settling into a new sort of routine in this small apartment. It also feels like I'm living…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 6)

7:30AM Maybe because it's Monday so the whole house was up early this morning once more. 8:30AM Started work! Had 2 lectures to go through today, but thankfully they weren't too painful to go through. Managed to sit through the both of them with a cup of cold coffee. 12PM Took a short break and…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 5)

Wow, can't believe that it's already day 5 of our stay home notice. Kept thinking that it was still day 4 for some reason. 1 weekend down, 1 more to go! 8:00AM Got out of bed after lying around for close to an hour. There was greater inertia this morning, but managed to pull myself…
